Since when did Pi day become such a big deal? We know –ever since Petsy’s Pie over in Sommerville started this great contest:
Put your thinking caps on! 3.14 @ 1:59 we will start the pi, pie prizes at our Beacon Street location. If you can recite 10 digits of pi we’ll reward you with a cutie pie and a pi sticker. If you know 100 digits the prize is a gift certificate for a large pie, if you are a master of pi and can recite 314 digits, you’ll win our grand pie prize of a pie per season gift certificate!
We would like to take a moment now and appreciate our elementary school teachers for making us memorize the first ten digits of pi, which is etched in out memories forever. 3.141592654. This is an example of how math is implemented in real life. Memorize the pi in exchange for a pie.
If you need an extra recipe on top of all the tweets and blog posts for great pies that took place today, take a look at our blueberry pie. We think you’ll like it.
Happy Pi Day! and FYI, tomorrow is World Contact Day…Happy Weekend!
